In Summation returns to prove his case

Email

MIAMI - Monday's main event at Calder, the $40,000 B L's Sweep Stakes, offers the first opportunity for winners of early-season 2-year-old races to run back, and a second chance to get a look at In Summation, probably the most impressive member of that group.

In Summation, a son of Put It Back trained by Frank Gomez, captured his career debut by a widening 4 3/4 lengths on May 20. The performance earned the young colt a Beyer Speed Figure of 90.

Purchased for $130,000 out of the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company's March sale by the JEB Stable, In Summation had his first race flattered even further when its runner-up, Grand Magician, returned just 10 days later to score a similarly easy 3 1/2-length maiden allowance win. Grand Magician will be among In Summation's eight rivals in the 5 1/2-furlong B L's Sweep.

B.B.'s Concert, who rallied to a one-length victory launching his career in a five-furlong race on May 30, will likely be the second choice in the B L's Sweep.

Trained by Manny Tortora for the B and B Racing Stable Inc., B.B's Concert will race on Lasix for the first time Monday.

Triplethepleasure, who showed a high turn of speed to win his debut at a quarter-mile six weeks ago, figures to give In Summation a challenge for the early lead. Triplethepleasure is a stablemate of Stolen Prayer, the most impressive 2-year-old filly winner of the current session. Both youngsters hail from the barn of trainer Eddie Plesa Jr.

The remainder of the B L's Sweep field includes Mister Supreme, With a City, Tizzys No Saint, Rolling Honor, and Awesome Idea.

Final Prophecy romps in deluge

Neither his 123-pound weight assignment, a lack of pace, or torrential rain could keep Final Prophecy from dominating Saturday's $40,000 The Band Is Passing Stakes.

The Band Is Passing began in a light shower and ended under rain so heavy it was nearly impossible to see the field as they came down the stretch. But it was easy to make out Final Prophecy at the wire after he pulled away to a decisive 9 3/4-length decision over Dancing Master and seven other overmatched rivals in the 1 1/16-mile overnight race decided over a grass course officially listed as good.

The victory was the second straight for Final Prophecy, a 6-year-old son of World Stage, who earlier in the meet registered a last-to-first win in the Carterista Handicap. Trained by David Brownlee for owners Dale and Jeanne Howes, Final Prophecy will likely make his next start in the $100,000 Mecke Handicap on July 4.
